Hi Nicolas,

Good job in spotting the bug. In order to keep track of all the bugs
and their info it is necessary to use a bug tracker. For ubuntu this
can be found here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/
There you can click the "Report a Bug" button ( or
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+filebug ), and follow the steps.
The pachage the command "modinfo" is part of is called
"module-init-tools". This is very useful information to the

If you could report the bug there it would be very helpful.

If you ever want to know what package a command belongs to there are
two simple steps involved.
1) Find the commands full path using the command "which".
i.e. which modinfo
    This will show you modinfo's full path, in this case "/sbin/modinfo"
2) use "dpkg -S /path/to/file" to find out what package it belongs to.
i.e. dpkg -S /sbin/modinfo
